Meta Kiosk: How to run multiple different types of kiosk modes on a Sun Ray Server/FOG

Haven't you ever wanted to be able to have more than one type of  kiosk running from the same Sun Ray server or FOG? Now you can. JDS, UTTSC, VDA, VDA no Card, VDM, and even non-kiosk uses like X11 (using Xnest), VNC and full screen apps. (I've even thrown utswitch and xterm for convenience.)

I've "productised" a Kiosk mode that sits above other Kiosks to call on them as required - as always, based on what you tell your tokens to use, leveraging the "Other Info" field.

It's called "META KIOSK".

Since SRSS 4.1 there is a builtin feature to do this using utkiosk and utkioskoverride. Only drawback: it requires using the command line to configure it.

Think the link is broken for this article. New location, maybe?

Fixed. For some reason the system decided to "unpublish" the article - must be because I was updating it. I've "re-posted" and it's up again. Thanks for letting us know.
